One thought on “About

  1. Dear Rabbi Eger Shalom, 

    My name is Tomer Barash, I lead the department for LGBTQ Aliyah and Diaspora Jewry at the Association for LGBTQ Equality in Israel (The Aguda).

    I’m reaching out to you to possibly interest you in being an honorable guest speaker in one of our programs. It is called The Aguda LGBTQ Ambassadors program.  

    This initiative is a one-of-a-kind virtual program that brings together Jewish LGBTQ Young Professionals, 21+ years of age from all around the world in order to explore various aspects of LGBTQ leadership and activism, and bridge between Jewish LGBTQ+ peers globally.  LGBTQ Ambassadors become part of an exclusive and selected community of young professional influencers who gather for online/digital workshops every month, lectures and training sessions led by some of today’s leading Jewish LGBTQ influencers and allies from around the world. We have over 35 Ambassadors from all over the world, from Australia to the US and all that is in between.

    This is where you come in. I would love to host you as a speaker. This means joining the Ambassadors for an online ZOOM lecture by you. 

    This would happen at the end of February, according to your availability, or at a later date. 
    I would love to tell you more, but for now wanted to check up and see if this would interest you in any way. Would love for you to be a part. 

    Looking forward to hearing back from you. 
    Thanks and best of health!
